  • Heaters are fully-rated to the stated water flow, so storage tanks are not required, and water temperature is available instantly, and for unlimited time periods.
  • No water preheating or recovery time is needed.
  • Explosion-proof models are designed for hazardous locations. These washers are ideal for underground or indoor use, where air quality is a primary concern.
  • Skid, portable or trailer mounted units available.
